If you’re tired of video meetings, squinting at low-quality video with nobody making virtual eye contact, maybe you should be turning to Nvidia and its new AI software, called Maxine.

Announced in a press release, Nvidia said that the “GPU-Accelerated AI Platform, Nvidia Maxine, enables video-conference providers to vastly improve streaming quality and offer AI-powered features.”
Maxine is a cloud-native platform, which means that the heavy lifting is done on Nvidia’s servers.
Video compression saves bandwidth
Video-compression technology based, as so much of the company’s product claims to be, on AI, means that the video bandwidth consumption is massively reduced. This makes for much smoother video, even with internet speeds that leave much to be desired.
SEOUL, South Korea, Oct. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — StradVision will reveal its new Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems (ADAS) solution for automotive surround view monitoring at NVIDIA’s 11th GPU Technology Conference (GTC) 2020.
The annual event, held online from October 5 to 9 this year due to COVID-19, has previously attracted more than 45,000 registered attendees. It brings together industry leaders, specialists, developers, researchers, engineers, and innovators looking to enhance their skills, exchange ideas, and gain a deeper understanding of how AI will transform their work.
Available to GTC’s registered attendees as an on-demand presentation, StradVision Platform Engineer Kukhyun Cho’s session will explain how the company’s flagship product SVNet works with Surround View Monitors (SVMs) to form an accurate, 360-degree visualization of a vehicle’s environment. Through a process called Edge Blending, the image edges from front, rear, left, and right cameras are seamlessly fused into one combined image.
Nvidia’s new GeForce RTX 3080 Founder’s Edition graphics card ditches the “reference” style, single blower-style fan for a push/pull cooling solution. That much you already know. What you may find fascinating is that without any kind of thermal solution directly attached, a GPU like this would reach in excess of 750 degrees Celsius — about 100 degrees hotter than the melting point of aluminum.
So, cooling: it’s kind of important!
You may also find it interesting that a GPU’s cooling design can directly impact the types of systems or options your favorite PC builds like Origin, Alienware, Maingear and Falcon Northwest might offer.
In fact, Kelt Reeves of Falcon Northwest — the company largely responsible for the birth of gaming PCs — is an outspoken perfectionist when it comes to what he’ll allow in his systems. Of course,
